Let's Make It
Mix all ingredients except oil and pasta sauce just until blended; shape into 20 (1-1/2-inch) meatballs.
Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add half the meatballs; cook 5 to 6 min. or until evenly browned on all sides, turning occasionally. Remove browned meatballs from skillet; set aside. Repeat with remaining oil and meatballs.
Return all meatballs to skillet. Stir in pasta sauce. Bring just to boil, stirring frequently; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 10 min. or until meatballs are done (165°F) and heated through, stirring occasionally.
How to Seed the Zucchini
To easily remove the seeds from the zucchini, cut the zucchini in half, then use a small spoon to scrape out the seeds from insides of both zucchini halves.
These meatballs make great leftovers. Cool the cooked meatballs, then place in airtight container and refrigerate up to 1 week, or freeze up to 3 months. To reheat before serving, spoon meatballs into microwaveable container; cover. Microwave on HIGH 3 to 4-1/2 min. or until meatballs are heated through, stirring after 2 min. If frozen, thaw overnight in refrigerator before reheating as directed.
